Hi, I downloaded (for free) a copy of the Envision 8006 (and 8007 supplement) manual from the Elna website 2 1/2 years ago. The Envision 8007 is the same as the Janome Memory Craft 5700. I can email you a copy of the manual.

My Memory Craft 7000 sometimes does the same thing, if it's very cold. Try warming it up by placing it near a heat source, a vent or a floor heater, for a few minutes. Then it works perfectly.
I've used these machines for over 20 years now, and they're my favorite!

If this doesn't solve your problem, you need to take it in for servicing.

They are work horses, but they do need their maintenance from time to time.

I hope this helps you.

Hello Janome User!

I found a partial user manual for you.


It should get you started.

There is an LCD Backlight Panel that illuminates the screen, and yes, they do fail.
Before you start, just check the screen contrast dial inside the top cover, front right, they can be easily knocked and this will also cause the screen to go light or dark.
Janome no longer supplies the LCD Backlight, however, we have an after market replacement at our store, and also provide fitting instructions and a good deal more besides.
If you care to contact me I can send a Diagnostic Routine and the Screen Reset instructions for you to check if there is anything else causing troubles.
Please remember to give details of your dilemma as we do receive a lot of requests.

You can always use a snap-on foot but you will also need the snap-on shank adapter for your Janome machine:

Here is a partial manual for a Janome Memory Craft 5200, perhaps it will be similar enough to your machine.
Spare parts for sewing machines can be bought online at sites like Ebay, or try contacting Janome for help.
Hope this helps!

ask the service man for a quote and then get on e-bay to see if the board is available.

I can't see this manual on line free I"m sorry. Next option is to contact Janome in your country and ask if they have it available.

These are the instructions in the manual:
Adjusting the Thread Tension
Balanced thread tension:
Small amount of the needle thread shows on the wrong side of the fabric.
When the needle thread tension is too tight:
The bobbin thread shows on the right side of the fabric. Reduce the tension by turning the tension dial to a lower number.
When the needle tension is too loose:
The needle thread forms loops and the stitches look shaggy.
Increase the tension by turning the dial to a higher number.

However, if you have recently changed the needle check that it is pushed right up in the slot. Other thing that springs to mind is making sure that the bobbin thread is correctly placed in the bobbin, and that the chamber is not full of lint and threads.

The fuse is blowing because the wheel is tight. This causes an increase of load on the motor which in turn blows the fuse.
I would look at the upper and lower shafts for thread wraps or dirt, properly lubricate the bushings, turn machine by hand and try to find tight spots. no sense putting in a new fuse until the problem is fixed

Do you hve a USB stick or memory and inserted. If o remove them and reboot your machine.

If you look at the back of the machine you should see the button that will let you lower the feed dog. It looks like you slide the button one way to lower and then the other way to raise the feed dog.

To make it a bit easier just go to the following web site and move down to the pictures as there is one showing the back of the machine. The button would be on your right:
